Recently someone told me that there is a difference between food grown in an
organic process and food grown on a chemical based diet. The difference (this
person said) was the amount or even the presence of phyto elements. If this
is true, even slightly true, then the quest to differentiate organic food from
chemically grown food in a nutritional analysis may be able to move forward.
I understand that NASA Ames may be working on this concept to better the food
astronauts eat or may grow in space. My understanding of phyto elements is
very limited. I have read that they are the major contributer to color in
vegetables. Especially the red and ornge colors that macrobiotics favor.
Many supplement dealers attribute a nutritional value to phyto elements and
many supplements are based on this assumption. I have done several browser
searches and have come up with product advertising only.
Does anyone have any opinions or references on this subject? Is there
anyone that you know of that would be able to speak about this subject at a
large sustainable agriculture conference?
